McCain Backs Path to Citizenship for Undocumented at Immigration Town Hall

Posted By on Tue, Aug 27, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake spoke at a town hall meeting on immigration today in Mesa. One major takeaway: McCain made a forceful case for granting citizenship—albeit after a long, 13-year process that includes fines and fees—to the 11 million undocumented people now in the United States.

That puts him at odds with much of the GOP base, many members of the GOP caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Republican National Committee, which voted earlier this month to oppose any path to citizenship for the undocumented, including the DREAM Act kids. (We'll have more on the RNC vote in this week's print edition.)

Watch McCain's comments on why there should be a path to citizenship after the jump.
